Bag of Randomness for Wednesday, December 14, 2016

  • Fifteen years ago yesterday I met who would become WifeGeeding. I’m not going to bore you with the details, but in short, we met at a Mavs game and I saved the ticket stub, because, you know, I’m a romantic. We were engaged seven months later. Seven years later DaughterGeeding came into our lives. It’s been fun, but it’s been hard, marriage is challenging, but that’s what builds substance, and that’s what makes it worth it. It’s not perfect, and no one should be tricked into thinking it should be.
  • I may have mentioned this before, but if she dies before me, I’m going to give all the prosthetic eyes she’s used over the years to our kids for the sole purpose of being able to say, “They have their mother’s eyes.”
    • Yes, she’s had more than one glass eye. As you age, your face structure will change, and you’ll need a better fitting prosthetic to fit in that ocular cavity.
  • I’m one of those who will check account balances and transactions several times a day for peace of mind. Yesterday I found another unauthorized transaction, but this one was at my favorite BBQ place, Hutchin’s. The bank rep stated the transaction was done a little after 8:00 PM the evening prior but at that time, I would have finished tucking the kids into bed. So that’s now two unauthorized charges in two different accounts within ten days.
  • For you local folks job hunting, I hear ExxonMobil in Irving will have an open position soon.
  • Since upgrading my DirecTV equipment, I’ve noticed greater detail in people. For instance, Rex Tillerson has a massive amount of nose hair only coming out of his left nostril, and I can see the sunspots on Scott Pelley and Anderson Cooper’s forehead they are trying to cover up with makeup.
  • Something I never thought about before, but yesterday I learned the plural of “court-martial” is “courts-martial”, not “court-martials”.
  • I know of two indoor skydiving facilities in the area, but Stockholm now has one for wingsuit flying (YouTube).
  • I was looking at this DIY shower install on Imgur and these tile spacers stood out, I’ve never seen them that large.
  • Imgur – Confusing perspective
  • Prominent Baylor donors project $223 million price tag for sexual assault scandal
  • Woman Shares Her Journey From Fitness Competitor to Cancer Fighter: ‘I’m Learning to Love Myself Again’
  • Random bits of trivia from Alan Thicke’s Wikipedia page:
    • He started dating actress Kristy Swanson when she was 17 years old in 1986 and got engaged to her two years later when he was 42.
    • As a theme song composer, he collaborated with his first wife for such sitcoms as  ‘Diff’rent Strokes’ and ‘The Facts of Life’. He also wrote a number of TV game show themes such as the original theme to Wheel of Fortune.
